Harper Collins Publishers, 2016. ISBN 9781460752234
(Age: 3-6) Recommended. We all know what sound comes from a cow, duck and sheep but have you ever wondered what noise comes from a giraffe? Written by debut author and illustrator Craig MacLean comes a fresh and funny picture book that will delight young children as they ask 'what noise comes from a giraffe?'
Through bright and in-your-face colours with a large format print, young readers engage in rhyming text as they follow a number of familiar animals and their sounds with the pressing and continuous question, 'but what noise comes from a giraffe?' Children aged 3-6 are provided with opportunities on every page to share their ideas and mimic animal sounds. Illustrations delightfully depict well known animals with a slightly textural appearance.
Allowing and promoting creativity, Craig MacLean's silly but thoroughly enjoyable story will have children giggling and guessing as they turn every page.
